Vince Edwards first screen appearance (uncredited) was in Delmer Daves' DARK PASSAGE, a gritty noir adapted from a novel by David Goodis. Edwards is arguably best known as the lead in MURDER BY CONTRACT. THE SCAVENGERS, directed the following year by the underrated John Cromwell, is a solid B picture filmed in Hong Kong and the Philippines. Not quite up to the noir heights of neither the actor nor the director but still quite compelling all the same. Edwards stars as a former smuggler who goes to Asia to locate his missing wife. Unfortunately, his wife has fallen in with a bad crowd.
